Link of the Week | Handshake for publishing students at Pace University

 

Is your job search yielding less-than-fruitful results? Are you stressed from preparing summer and fall internship applications? (Contrary to popular belief, it is not too early to start applying for fall positions, especially if they’re with the Big 5!) Here’s our advice: book an appointment with Professor Jane Kinney-Denning, the publishing program’s Executive Director of Internships and Corporate Outreach, or someone in Career Services. They’re here to help you navigate the big wide job world out there.
